Alan Grayson is my former congressman. While Grayson was in office, I attended the Restoring Honor rally in Washington DC hosted by Glenn Beck. Mr. Grayson, in his usual despicable manner, described the rally attendees as “people who were wearing sheets over their heads 25 years ago.” When the person who is suppose to be representing me, personally attacks my character and tries to provoke me in a such a manner, I don’t forget it.
So when Todd Long, after being repeatedly interrupted by Mr. Grayson in the debate last Monday, told Grayson he could “shut up”, it made me think of how I would LOVE to tell Grayson to shut up, too. When my 82 year old dad heard of Long’s remarks, he said “I’m glad somebody finally told the blowhard to shut up.”
Recalling all of the inflammatory, outlandish rhetoric that came out of Mr. Grayson’s mouth during his 2 years in congress, makes this video even more entertaining!

On Hugh Hewitt’s radio show on Wednesday, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul said that as far as he was concerned, Mitt Romney was already the victor over incumbent Democratic President Barack Obama.
“You know, I think — I’m in the minority here, but I think the election is over,” said Paul, who was on to promote his new book “Government Bullies: How Everyday Americans Are Being Harassed, Abused, and Imprisoned by the Feds.”
“I think that Romney has already won,” Paul continued. “The people really are tired of the debt. They’re tired of irresponsible leadership. I think they’re tired of having 23 million people out of work. So, I think you’ll find — and this is my prediction, and of course, I could be wrong. I am fallible.”
Paul went on to tell Hewitt, who has his own recently released book, “The Brief Against Obama: The Rise, Fall & Epic Fail of the Hope & Change Presidency,” that things are lining up much like they did in the 1980 election for Ronald Reagan on the economic front, which will work in Romney’s favor.
“But you remember when Reagan just pulled away from Carter at the end?” Paul continued. “I think that’s what we’re going to see is people coalesce and find that the country’s just not headed in the right direction with all this unemployment and economic stagnation and that they want somebody who’s been in business, somebody who’s run successful businesses and created jobs. I think that’s the way it’s going to break down, simply on that issue, is which way do we take the country — with someone who likes American business, or someone who can’t wait to sort of punish, regulate and tax American business.”

Hello fellow Progressives.
You have 4 choices in the 2012 Presidential election:
1) You can vote Democrat.
2) You can vote Republican.
3) You can choose to not vote at all.
4) You can vote for a 3rd party candidate that has NO chance of winning. *(A good way to show what policies you believe in but it has the same results in the end as not voting at all)
It is a Bad system but that is what we have right now. Do you want to change it? If you do want to change it then I have just one more question for you:
What do you think your chances are at changing our system to a more Progressive system if the Republicans get elected versus if the Democrats get elected?
Democrats: 40% *(I’m an optimist)
I’ll take the Democrats!
Yeah it stinks being forced into these limited choices so we MUST change things from within. First we Must get the Progressives elected on the Local and State levels. Then we will have a real chance of changing things! The President needs good people like Elizabeth Warren, Sherrod Brown, Alan Grayson and others to give him good bills to sign!
And Very importantly we must also pay attention to votes for State Court positions! Spread awareness that those are usually in completely separate sections from the main part of the ticket when you vote and Very importantly let people know which ones support progressive issues, (most people don’t even know who is running).
Make your choice wisely because we All have to live with it.Hello fellow Progressives. You have 4 choices in the 2012 Presidential election:... more
"The professor said she is a Native American, a person of color, and you can see she's not," Scott Brown said
When I heard Senator Brown utter those words during the first debate with Elizabeth Warren, I, at first thought… “NO, HE DIDN’T SAY THAT DID HE?”… Oh yes he did and with a serious unflinching look upon his face. Bigotry Gone Wild has happened to our country, once thought of as something under wraps, within the fringe circles of the ignorant is now, not only ubiquitously In Your Face but also has grown legs of PROUD OF IT.
I have to repeat: A NATIVE AMERICAN, A PERSON OF COLOR, AND YOU CAN SEE SHE’S NOT.” What was his point? Oh, I see, he wanted to pin that tag on her to reveal how she used her “person of color” identification as a voucher to make things easier for herself.
A whopping big, SAY WHAT?
It’s obvious that his use of the term “Check the Box as a Person of Color” indicates that people of color get more perks than white people (which he is also accusing Warren of being with his remark… “She Said She Is Native American…You Can See She’s Not” in other words... SHE'S WHITE!)
An even BIGGER, ‘SAY WHAT?’…

Massachusetts Senate debate begins with discussion of Warren’s Cherokee heritage
By Chris Moody, Yahoo! News
The first official debate between Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown and his Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren began Thursday with a discussion about Warren's Native American heritage.
Brown devoted his opening remarks to accuse Warren, a Harvard Law School professor who says she is part Cherokee Indian, of using her background to give her an advantage when competing for jobs throughout her career.
"The professor said she is a Native American, a person of color, and you can see she's not," Brown said in the first moments of the debate, echoing an attack line that has dogged Warren throughout much of the race this year.
Warren, who appeared to be caught off guard, was forced to use her opening remarks to respond, and she denied that she had taken advantage of affirmative action programs when seeking jobs.
"I never used it," Warren said, adding later: "I didn't get an advantage because of my background."
The debate moderator quickly moved the conversation to other topics. The candidates went on to debate tax rates, abortion (both candidates support protecting access), education and laws that enforce "equal pay for equal work" for men and women in the workplace.
The Massachusetts Senate race is considered one of the highest-profile contests in the country. Brown, a moderate Republican, won the seat two years ago in a special election after Democrat Edward Kennedy, who had held the seat since 1962, died in 2009. Warren, who helped start President Barack Obama's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau before launching her bid for the Senate, has a national following among liberals because of her work on consumer issues.
The candidates will hold three more debates before Election Day.

In one of a series of secretly recorded tapes from a Republican campaign fundraiser that leaked yesterday, Mitt Romney joked that it would help him to win the election if he were Latino. In a race where Latino voters hold more sway than ever, Romney referred to his father's roots in Mexico and notled that if he were actually Hispanic he’d “better shot at winning.”
George Romney, Mitt’s father, “was born of U.S. citizens who were living in Mexico at the time, and was not Hispanic. He never spoke Spanish, nor did his parents,” Romney told Univision last year.
In the secretly recorded tape, Romney said that if he were “born of Mexican parents, I'd have a better shot at winning this." "I mean, I say that jokingly," he added. "But it would be helpful to be Latino.”
Since he brought it up, we also wondered what Mitt Romney might be like if he were a Mexican-American living in the United States. We’ve developed some rough guesses of how Mitt might be different if he were actually Hispanic -- based on national population data from the Census Bureau and the Pew Hispanic Center.

FROM POLITICO by Charles Mahtesian
A Philadelphia Inquirer poll released Saturday has President Barack Obama leading Mitt Romney in Pennsylvania, 50 percent to 39 percent.
The post-convention surge that is often anticipated by both political parties in polling data appears to currently benefit President Barack Obama, who leads Republican Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney by 11 points among likely voters in the Keystone State, 50% to 39%, with a margin of error +/- 4%.
Pennsylvania Democrats are more consolidated behind Obama, with 77% in favor of Obama and 13% in favor of Romney, while Republicans are 18% in favor of Obama and 71% in favor of Romney.
The voters provided their opinion of the President, with a 56% favorable/40% unfavorable rating.
Following the conventions, Obama’s favorability rating has increased by 3 points, while his unfavorable rating has decreased by 6 points. Opinions of Romney have improved slightly following the conventions, but he still has a net negative personal popularity rating among voters in state, with 46% favorable/48% unfavorable rating.
As the first post-convention poll out of Pennsylvania, the 11-point margin among likely voters underscores why the state is fading from the battleground radar. The Inquirer’s last poll, fielded in late August, reported a 51 percent to 42 percent Obama advantage.
The latest poll, conducted Sept. 9 through Sept. 12, reported a surprising degree of awareness of the state’s new voter ID law: 80 percent of voters are familiar with it, including 41 percent who said they are very familiar. For all the criticism of the law from Democrats, roughly two-thirds (65%) of Pennsylvania voters support it.
Just 5 percent said the law will make voting difficult for them this year, compared to 94 percent who said it will not make it difficult.http://www.politico.com/blogs/charlie-mahtesian/2012/09/pennsylvania-poll-obama-up-by-1... more

He ain't heavy, he's my brother
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another
It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother
He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...In Florida for his bus tour on Sunday, President Barack Obama made an unannounced stop... more
